              n The Pink Hammer, four women sign up for a carpentry workshop to find the tutor has absconded with their fees and left behind Woody, her disgruntled husband. Annabel, Louise, Helen and Siobhan invade Woody's man cave and persuade him to run the course. His neatly ordered sanctua...ry will never be the same. And neither will they. A comedy about unlikely friendships and finding empowerment with power tools. "...a comedy which, despite all its outward affability and talent to amuse, reveals something deeper about human relationships" The Press Flagons and Foxtrots recreates New Zealand's Saturday night dance-hall era of the 1960s. The Twist was all the rage, a bloke had to do the right thing and everyone drank sneaky pints in the car park. At Newbury Hall, the Archie Moore Trio is hoping to hit the big time, but Sid won't let them play. Jill longs to marry Jack, the lead singer, but he's knocked up her friend, Rita, in a one-night stand. Hilarity ensues as everybody scrambles to pick up the pieces during a night of music and dancing. "A bloody good night out that only the most committed misanthrope would refuse to enjoy" The Dominion

              Jottings of a Geriatric Judge (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This 268-page memoir by a retired New Zealand Judge is a collection of 383 jottings of anecdotes, observations, insights, and short case notes providing and absorbing and delightfully written insight into the daily life of a judge in what he describes as ""the largest and busiest... court in the land, a sort of busy Central Railway Station where are all lawbreakers begin their journey, and where most people will have their only courtroom experience."The author, Russell Callander, was a District Court Judge, Chief Justice of Samoa, and a regional Executive Judge. He was also a convenor of the New Zealand Parole Board for 14 years. He received two honours from Queen Elizabeth II: the New Zealand 1990 commemoration medal, and the Queen's Service Order in 2015. During his 35 years on the bench he jotted down anything that amused, annoyed, or interested him. When he retired in 2013 he culled, edited, and organised his large collection. His jottings are a pot pourri of items, some serious, some light-hearted; but all revealing the human fallibilities judges deal with day by day. He has included some delightful cartoons. It is a book that can be read in any order, at any time. Born in 1940, the author is a genuine geriatric!

              Slow Travel is a beautifully designed and practical compendium of places, activities, tours and experiences that will inspire you to get on the road in your own time and on your own terms. It can be challenging to travel in the modern world without falling for the temptations of ...fast planes, cheap airlines, last-minute tickets, quick-fix travel apps and overzealous tour operators. To actually take a back seat, and allow yourself time to embrace the ebb and flow of travel, requires a more thoughtful and philosophical way of journeying. This book explores slow travel as a physical or philosophical endeavour, taking readers off the beaten track and through nature, and unveils journeys that will nurture talent and ignite the inner-self. You could decide to cruise slow-mo down Egypt's Nile on a 19th-century steam ship, visit ancient dzongs and temples in Bhutan or learn the art of sourdough baking in Venice. There are features on the world's best wellness escapes, digital-detox destinations and 'slo-tels' (hotels where long minimum stays and remote locations ensure full immersion). Along with compelling information, interviews and imagery, you'll find a how-to guide of helpful tips, from planning for slow travel to what music to listen to in the slow zone. In this fast-paced world, it's worth adjusting your vacation time to a pace we can all strive to keep up with.

              This historical monograph examines the decline of the hacienda estates within Jalisco, Mexico, during the early decades of the twentieth century. The book also explores the impact of the land reform program of President Lazaro Cardenas in transforming the agrarian economic struct...ure of the region. This study contributes to an ongoing lively debate about the hacienda system and the meaning of Cardenas's reforms. This is an important work because it explores the evolution of a regional socioeconomic system that promoted urban industrial growth at the expense of the rural poor. The model of regional development described is applicable to other areas of Mexico and underdeveloped Third World nations with extensive peasant populations. The research for this investigation has wider implications regarding issues of global hunger and malnutrition.

              Jake Collin, a modern-day cowboy, rancher, and logger in western Montana, was the town's most wooed after Hunk-of-Hunks until a stranger wandered into town, Nan, who had sexy and friendly dialed up to a full-blown 10+. Jake and Nan married and at first things were peaches and cre...am -- until lately. Nan did a 180 change, took up residence on the living room couch and does nothing but bitch, eat, brood and watch TV. However, Nan does supply Jake with extra helpings of rolling-in-the-hay. About the author, Paul Garmisch: Just when you thought the last of the real cowboys were extinct from too many rodeos and late-night, hooch-soaked booty calls from women in tight western jeans, comes writer Paul Garmisch. A true renaissance man that has lived to fill his bucket list. Born in Chicago, 1952, raised during high school on a northern Illinois dairy farm, college at the U of Montana for 7 years studying forestry, geology, and other environmental sciences while working his way through college operating earth moving equipment in Missoula gravel pits and road construction, a fraternity house manager, a sorority house waiter, studio musician (Stand Up Bass & Cello), and playing music in local taverns with his band. After college Paul went to work for 20 some-odd years in Montana and Wyoming -- Logging, cattle ranching, farming, placer gold mining, field geologist, log home construction, forest fire fighter, ski mountaineer guide, snow avalanche control, wilderness search and rescue/recovery, big game hunter/killer, and the list goes on for this well-seasoned outdoorsman.
